Vermont set to declare hydroeletricity a renewable energy

On Friday, Vermont Governor Jim Douglas is expected to sign into law a formal recognition of hydroelectricity from large projects as renewable energy.  It is a designation that Quebec politicians, diplomats and Hydro-Qu├ębec executives have been actively seeking for many years. 

Vermont law currently defines hydro facilities under 200 megawatts as renewable. The also bill lifts that cap.  For more information about the law, click here.
